WEEKLY MOTOR NOTES. Competitions are "the thing" nowadays. Go where you will you come across the com- petition face, flushed, strangely serious, the eyes fixed upon the far-away half-closed eyes with that dull glaze possessed also by the optics of a fish deceased If the competing oneisafriend of yours you will be probably be rushed at, almost before you can lay your hat and gloves aside a series of weird pictures will be thrust under yidur nose and a voice hoarse with pent-up feeling will beseech you to supply offhand a solution for number 23, failing which will be the horrible curse of the loss of a ten shilling cash prize and half a hundredweight of some fright- fully useful line of domestic goods. These are symptoms of the keenest enjoy- ment. There is nothing to be alarmed at. Your failure to translate into Pool Quay a picture of a small lake and a gentleman whose preference does not appear to be water trying to find the slot in his front-door yale, will only spur your hoarse friend to greater efforts, to secure correspondingly trivial results. But what about running a competition your- self, for a prize not so trifling ? This is an idea which has occured to Michelin and they offer it to you. You will have no brain-waving to do, no coupons to collect you leave all the work to the tyre and simply record the results in a book, specially prepared for the purpose, a copy of which the Michelin Tyre Co. Ltd., will send you gratis on application at their address 81, Fulham Road, London, S. W. Michelin want you to prove by actual trial that Michelin Tyres will pay you best. The Record Book igi ven you in order that you may calculate exactly how much each cover, of all the makes you use, costs you per mile. It will enable you to get at your tyremiJeage cost to a penny and will show you which make of tyre yields you the greatest return oil your outlay. This is a competition among tyres that is well worth your while for, when you come to con- sider the fact, it will enable you to decide, once and for all, which tyres to buy and which to avoid. A postcard bearing your name and address and the word Record Book," is sufficient to secure you a complimentary copy by return. BIBENDUM. I
